He was tops, but you rarely got a fair price, he loved coming from off the pace especially at Cahokia where speed ruled. Hard to bet on, bet against at your own peril.

Is he still training horses there?
I haven't seen his name listed with an active horse for a while.....saw him last summer at the fort and he looked rather frail.

Eddie Arcaro. He retired long before I ever made a bet. Only jockey I can think of who never cost me money.

I did real well betting Stevie when he first started as a bug boy at Arlington Park.
It might have been weight also but he came to Santa Anita and went 0-100 If I remember right. Shortly after he left for England. Found it weird listening to him when they interviewed him in England and he had that British accent.

Agapito Delgadillo. Something about the way he rides has always made me a fan of his. His son Jose is going to be a pretty good rider. He has done very well at Parx and Penn National. I've only been a horse player about 7 years now. There's not many my age. I am 35 and when I go to the track most of the folks are almost twice my age.

And I have been to tracks all over the country. Remington Park, Lone Star Park, The Downs at Albuquerque, Santa Anita, Los Alamitos, Churchill Downs. My home track is Retama Park. The one thing about being one of the younger guys is that the older guys will always chat and give tips here and there.

That's what I love about playing the Ponies. You can learn a lot from a total stranger. I only play a few tracks but seeing a guy study and handicap a random race from lets say Hawthorne or Fairmount Park is pretty impressive when they give you a tip on an exacta play.

Always looked at jockeys as a necessary evil, more a fan of horses than the humans. Double or triple that when it comes to trainers.
